Excerpt: I'm using this monitor for video editing and photography. Colors are true right out of the box. Highly recommend this monitor if your in the market for a 27" 2560 x 1440 resolution. This will be a great companion sitting next to my upcoming Apple 27" iMac with Retina 5K display! As always, B&H is the best!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Never Freezes, Powerful, Versatile
Summary: First of all, and most importantly, this IS the ASUS PB278Qr version of the monitor with the little dots replacing the (IMHO) more useful icons in the older version. Ordered 4-9-15, delivered 4-11-15. It was a pleasant surprise to receive the newer model. I'd already done my research, and the monitor is everything that it claims to be. I upgraded from an HD IPS panel, which served me well for years, and the difference is night and day.
Summary: I purchased this monitor several months ago. Last week, I received a new monitor the Samsung 28 inch 4K. I am running both using the same graphic card GeForce GTX780. I loved the ASUS monitor. Now with the addition of the Samsung 4K I realized to what extend the ASUS colors, sharpness, depth and vividness are far superior to the Samsung (regardless how much color adjustments I made on the Samsung).
Excerpt: I bought this monitor because I wanted more screen space and I also wanted the 2560 x 1440 resolution. The setup was relatively easy, although you do have to be careful to get snug fits on the cables and the power cord. I am connecting this monitor to a late 2012 Mac Mini and purchased a Display Port to MiniDisplay Port cable from B & H to make that connection.
Summary: For the past 3 years I have been using a 27" 1920x1080 Asus monitor for my PTC Creo CAD work. I like the size of that monitor, but being that it's a TN panel I find it to be fatiguing after a long day. My experience with IPS displays in several of my Chromebooks (HP Chromebook 11, Toshiba Chromebook 2, and a Pixel) made me realize how much easier it is to look at these IPS/PLS displays for extended periods of time.
Excerpt: This is the Best monitor hands down I had ever own. Great investment. Will be buying another one shortly.The best quity dollar per dollar. If you want a first class monitor get this one from the First Class store B&H. The quality of this monitor is impressive and so is the B&H customer service. That is why I had been buying from them from more than 45 years.
Summary: I bought 2 of these to use on a 45-inch wide desk. After receiving them I was a bit worried they'd be too big and too close for the space, but with just a slight angle they fit perfectly and completely immerse me in whatever I'm doing without being too much. I'm not a professional graphic artist and I'm not the type to break down subpixel structure and claim to notice a difference.
Excerpt: I use this as my primary monitor. My other two monitors are 25" and 22" 1920x1080 ones. I use the PB278Q for graphics and as a general purpose monitor. I calibrated all three with a Spyder 4 hardware/software product. None of the monitors needed much correction. The PB278Q is razor sharp. It looks better if you lower the brightness down to half.
Excerpt: Wonderful Monitor!!! One thing to notice is that the stand is adjustable and therefore the specs are deceiving. I was worried it would not fit under my desk hutch, but with stand lowers to approximately 17 inches, perfect for me.
